Fresh air

After a while you need to get out of the house, rain or no rain. Taking our flimsy and broken umbrellas, we braved the wind and gloom and went to the top of Parliament Hill (95m above sea level) -
 and found it muddy -
Not a lot of people about - altogether we saw six runners, four dogs and their walkers, and two solitary walkers with umbrellas.

Everywhere was muddy or flooded, or both -
 At Hampstead Mixed Bathing Pond, the sign says "No swimming" ("Danger sudden drop") -
 and all year long, you are reminded to keep off the ice: "Ice Kills".
